We have been eating at The Blue Marlin since 2002 or earlier. Their fish tacos (we prefer battered) are delicious. For $3.50 you get two tacos with fried fish, pickled onions, cabbage, pico de gallo, and the best cilantro cream sauce you will ever taste. This combo makes for the best fish taco in town. They also have delicious fish... More

This place is great! Great food, service and price. We will go back. The grilled shrimp was perfectly done. As we ate they brought in two huge bags of fresh oysters. Talk about fresh.

I have dined at this restaurant several times over the past 6 years, and am always impressed by how consistent and delicious the food and service is at The Bue Marlin. Not to mention they serve the best margaritas I have had in town. Can't wait for our next trip to Rocky Point so we can have another great meal!... More

A wonderful lunch on our way out of town. The grilled shrimp salad with the homemade cilantro lime dressing was delicious. My husband and daughter had the chicken chimichangas which they devoured. The guacamole was fresh and wonderful. We sat outside since we had our dog and they brought him a bowl of water. Such nice people. Worth a visit... More

Best of all it's very affordable. We had oysters for an appetizer and I go for the fish tacos every time...marlin, shrimp...they are all good. Keep a lookout for... More

A small restaurant, tucked into a side street off the Malecon, has always been consistently a great place for fresh, innovative seafood dishes. We got the special 4 course seafood meal and we're pleasantly surprised how high caliber the meal was. We started with a shrimp bisque.........so full of flavor. A fried oyster platter came next............cooked to perfection. Next came... More

4 of us went to The Blue Marlin for fish tacos. The service, cold beers and tacos were not only excellent but cheap too! The owner and staff were attentive and spoke English very well. We sat on the outside patio which was very pleasant.
